Absolutely love this wine. Chocolate, cherry, leathery, perfect with steak. Bold and full of flavor.

I got this as part of a WSJ+ wine order. Really enjoyed it and had a great subtle blackberry flavor to it.

Medium oak notes, some chalky notes as well, with some cherry flavors along with a bit of a muted dark chocolate taste.
